Volunteers Needed to Plant Trees and Plants at Rotary Park

 

Make a Difference Day- Stream Enhancement Project

Montgomery CountyMontgomery County, TN – On Saturday, October 23rd, from 10:00am-2:00pm volunteers are needed to help plant trees and plants along the banks and grassy area around the Wall Branch Creek.

Wall Branch Creek meanders through Montgomery County’s Rotary Park and provides cool vistas for park visitors and habitat for a broad variety of native wild life. This stream has a segment that receives concentrated storm water runoff from a relatively large grassy area, and this may be degrading the stream’s natural systems.

In an effort to protect and enhance this stream, the Montgomery County Storm Water Program, The Montgomery County Parks Department, the Tennessee University Extension Service, and the Cumberland River Compact have joined forces to plant native trees and grasses to area that will help protect the stream. These plantings will slow the flow of storm water and act as a natural filter to prevent pollution and sediments from being deposited in the stream. In addition, slowing the runoff will reduce erosive damage to the stream floodway and riparian areas.

For more information, please contact Stacy Goodwin 931-648-5732 – Montgomery County Parks & Recreation.
